security official and intelligence officer, i know f.b.i. agents who say it is the opposite of effective. it elicits bad information, and skilled interrogators can get more faster through other techniques without having to touch anybody. i also had the opportunity to work with some of the very c.i.a. officers who are depicted in the interrogation scenes in the movie who say we didn't know what was going to happen. we needed to get information right away. and you can't say it doesn't work because we got information after using these enhanced techniques as they call them clinically that we weren't getting before. now we have nothing to compare it to. we didn't kind of do the control tests where we tortured them for one set of information and interrogated them for another and able to cancel that out scientifically. there's no proof it works any better than anything else and the moral question is so messy that frankly, charlie at the end of all that with all the national peak i think the american people have kind of speaken on it. they don't have a taste for it. >> rose: what was it peter,

that in many this movie. there was an f.b.i. agent who walked out and said "i won't have anything to do with this, it's illegal, it's wrong, it's what our enemies do." there's not a character in this movie who raises the question about whether torture is right or wrong let alone whether it works. >> brown: let me ask you very briefly in our last 30 seconds. your fear here is that this portrayal will impact public understanding and possibly policy? >> i think pop culture is incredibly powerful. i think the t.v. show "24" if you look at the numbers changed public opinion and made people much more comfortable with torture. >> brown: mark, do you think this will affect public policy and perception? >> i think it will affect the way people remember this story. i personally didn't take away, as jane has, a strong mess on the subject of torture one way or the other. i did, for instance, from the show "24" which is clearly pro-torture, not from this, though. >> brown: mark bowden and jane mayer, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> brown: we have an extended interview with director catherine b
